On iOS, Chrome seems to work better than Safari for very long posts.

... that is all.

Be sure to whitelist MeFi when using iOS 9 content blockers

Just a friendly reminder: if you're using one or more iOS devices, have upgraded to iOS 9 and have jumped on the new content blocking functionality bandwagon, remember to add your favorite sites to the whitelist(s) of the blocker(s) of your choice. I added MeFi and other frequently visited faves of mine, seeing that ads served here by The Deck are high quality and unintrusive, and no doubt important for keeping the site going.

Warning - do not buy this IOS Metafilter reading App

This app, MetaReader ("an unofficial client for MetaFilter"), is a paid app and (at least under ios7) DOES NOT WORK AT ALL. It crashes on launch. I recently got a refund from iTunes. I did contact the seller via email and twitter two weeks ago and even sent a full crash log in an email but haven't heard anything back - which is why I asked Apple for (and got) a refund. I decided to make a meta to warn others because I am no longer listed as owning the app - because refund - and so can't leave a review on itunes to warn the unsuspecting. [more inside]

Tim Cook quotes Blue Beetle

Apple CEO Tim Cook on user privacy: A few years ago, users of Internet services began to realize that when an online service is free, you’re not the customer. You’re the product. But at Apple, we believe a great customer experience shouldn’t come at the expense of your privacy.

Old AskMe: if Apple had designed a car?

Within (I think) the last couple years, someone had asked in Ask MetaFilter something to the effect of, what new cars are the Apple products of cars? That is, what cars these are Apple-like in designs and details, quality of materials, user-friendliness, etc. I can't find this thread now—does anyone remember it? Thanks.

Immediate derail material

This is a way that many posts about independent games tend to go, where it is almost immediately sidetracked in to a discussion about Windows vs. everything else. Part of the solution is probably to put a windows only notification on the post, and part of the solution is probably just to move on without commenting if you're a mac user.

The percentage of Mac users of MetaFilter

Is the percentage of MetaFilter visitors using OS X or iOS higher, lower, or equivalent to the 9.5% of computer users in general?

Fuck You Apple's Safari 5.1

I would just like here and now to say a big "FUCK YOU" to Apple's "Lion Ready" Safari 5.1, which just ate nearly an hour's worth of work on an FPP for the sake of having to randomly and nonsensically "reload all windows and tabs" due to a single non-responsive web page. [more inside]

Blazecock related iPad overflow

Blazecock Pileon's relentless browbeating of anyone who is not a cheerleader for Apple and general bad behaviour whenever Microsoft is mentioned in the iPad thread and others is becoming increasingly tiresome. [more inside]

No Pepsi blue?

How is it possible that there is no Apple post? Has there been a secret agreement to not shill that I missed? Is there a secret plot? I always enjoy the fireworks, and am missing them this Tuesday.

Yeah, I wish I had bought stock back then too.

The Keynote Index Fund. In which Matt asks "Is it possible to make money off the Apple keynote talks given by Steve Jobs?".

Portland (OR) <3 Apple

It's an Apple town right to the core. That is the headline on an article in the (Portland) Oregonian.

Where's the line on product-related content?

MetaShillter: there's never been a deficit of accusations regarding the use of MeFi to push product. Many legitimate Best o' the Web posts contain product-related content. While it's clearly contra-Matt if you profit from a post, where's the fine line?

Safari Sidebars?

I'm a big fan of Safari. Any chance of Matt, or any other programmers here, creating a MeFi sidebar for this browser?

Rio post no different from Apple posts

I disagree with the deletion of the post comparing the Rio with other portable MP3 players. We see new Apple product announcements every couple of weeks here; this was no different.

Mac bloggers ahoy

I don't use blogger, so I don't know if this functionality exists elsewhere, but this looks pretty cool for blogger users on Mac OS 10.1.
